Both Domino and Saveur magazines are renowned for their beautifully designed platforms that reveal lifestyle-enhancing inspirations, tips, and tricks in their respective industries. Over the last several years, Domino has become the mecca for all things home-related, from exploring feng shui techniques to maximize your space to sourcing the perfect bed frame, and Saveur is the ultimate food, wine, and travel destination. At the helm of both is Chief Content Officer Kate Berry.
Berry draws from her 14 years of editorial experience to lead teams across various digital platforms to provide each audience with thoughtfully curated content. She has had an integral part in developing the Domino brand. This past September, Berry and Domino debuted a collection with Crate and Kids, and this month, the magazine unveiled its very first digital issue. Berry leads with the creative mindset that everyone has a different style and point of view. Thus, it's important that all voices and opinions are catered to. As she's been in the industry for over a decade, it should come as no surprise that Berry's past positions in editorial ultimately shaped her role today at the beloved publications.

Prior to joining Domino and Saveur, Berry spent eight years at the lifestyle veteran Martha Stewart Living and Martha Stewart Weddings, after her own wedding was featured in the publication and its design caught the attention of Martha Stewart. There, she evolved her role—climbing the ladder—from associate style editor to VP, creative director, and eventually editor at large. And, even before her calling to the media industry, Berry was actually working as a floral stylist and event designer in San Francisco, ultimately paving the way for what was to come. Listen to the latest episode of Second Life to hear how Berry continuously grew within the industry to become the Chief Content Officer behind not one, but two aspirational lifestyle publications—and all of the lessons she has learned along the way.
